Top 5 Wednesday #9: Favorite Friend Groups


“Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme in Goodreads, where you list your top 5 for the week’s chosen topic. You can check the group here for more discussions and topics. This week’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is “ Favorite Friend Groups

5.Angel — I don’t talk much about this show like I do about the show it was made spin off about but I love the friendships in this show. Angel, Fred, Cordelia, Wesley and Gunn are (almost) always there for each other. There was that time when Angel fired them and when they all abounded Wesley for that one mistake.

I might be a little bitter about them abounding Wesley? I get why they did it but if it had been Angel who did it to Wesley instead of other way around I think they would’ve forgiven him in a second. Especially Cordelia if Angel bought her new clothes, like he did after he realized his mistake about fireing his friends.

I love Angel and Fred but I think my favorite friendship is between Gunn, Wesley and Cordelia. I just really enjoyed the episodes when they had their own investigation firm.

Lastly, I want to give a little shoutout for Doyle. I didn’t think I should add him to this friend group since he only met Angel and Cordelia but I still miss him and I even added him to my current Spuffy fic.

4.ACOTAR by Sarah J. Maas — The inner circle! Rhysand, Feyre, Amren, Morrigan, Azriel and Cassian is definately a great friend group. They have sacrifised a lot to each other, like Rhysand being 50 years with Amara, Feyre going back to Tamlin and Amren giving up on what she is for them.

I kinda wish that the books were more based on their friendship than on action and relationships. I could care less about Feyre’s relationship with her ungrateful sisters or how said sisters are resisting their bonds with their mates. Feyre, Cassian and Lucien deserve better than them.

3.Magnus Chase by Rich Riordan — Magnus, Alex, Samirah, Blitzen and Hearthstone! I like friendships in Rick Riordan’s other books too but I prefer this friend group more.

2. Supernatural — How can I not add team free will in this list? I think I’ll like the new team free will group too but since I haven’t seen season 13 yet… But getting back to the point: I love team free will 1.0. Dean, Sam and Castiel are always just there for each other and they save the world together-ish.

1.One Tree Hill — Brooke, Hayley, Nathan,Clay,Julian and Quinn. This is the most realistic friendship in my list because they’re all human. I like how different they are from each other and they’re always there for each other.

I absolutely love Brooke’s character development! She became one of my all time favorite characters and even Hayley said something about her having the biggest heart. Nathan’s character development was good too but most of that was because of Hayley.

Julian never had any guy friends until he started dating Brooke and I think that’s kinda beautiful? I love how he showed Nathan’s son Jamie that it’s OK not to be good at sports (even though Jamie is amazing with sports) or to be afraid of things when Jamie sees his father as a superhero.

You might be thinking: why isn’t Peyton and Lucas in this list? It’s simple because I don’t like them. Peyton is maybe my least favorite character in this show. I think she was just a terrible, terrible friend, especially to Brooke. Peyton didn’t only kiss once but twice Brooke’s boyfriend. She didn’t even come to her ‘best friend’s’ wedding.

What books/ shows do you think should be on this list? What do you think about the tv shows/ books I listed?
